Design Floor? uhhh, maybe not
(Written a week ago)
I've mentioned my "Design Floor" as I don't have any large walls. My blocks are laid out on the living room floor and we both know how to step around them. However, occasionally someone will visit unexpectedly and tromp all over them, seemingly, they don't see the project. My Lady of Shallotte blocks are all positioned correctly and I'm slowly getting them together.
Last evening, DH was watching TV and got up for something, and CARASHHHHH!!! He is tall, and there is no way he can land anywhere except by hitting something first before ending up on the floor. His head hit the counter edge, then we don't know what else, but he lay there, holding his head, partly on the carpet, partly on the kitchen tile floor. (You probably know we are well into Senior Citizenship!) I was immediately at his side, slowly checking, but didn't see any bones protruding, no blood. He could count my fingers and his color was good. As I considered calling 911, and what door the EMTs would enter the house - oh gosh - this is the self-guilt part ... I realized if the EMTs came in the front door they'd tromp all over my quilt!!! Arghhhh, how could I be thinking of that at this almost-emergency, but I DID! 8-((( Things have definitely gotten too over-the-top when THAT is among my first thoughts.
In truth, one should always have a good Emergency Entrance/Exit and our OTHER door would be better, but I am ashamed of myself for thinking of that quilt layout!
